Lock up your daughters - George is looking for 'the one'

George Clooney hasn't met the love of his life yet.

The hunky 'Gravity' actor has dated a string of beautiful women in his years as a star, including recently splitting from former wrestling star Stacy Keibler and being linked to model Monika Jakisic, but claims he has yet to have his greatest romance.

When asked who has been the love of his life, George told W magazine: "I haven't met her yet."

The 52-year-old star, who was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993, named classic Hollywood stars Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly as his ideal women.

He explained: "When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn. I watched 'Roman Holiday' when I was 11, and I thought she was as elegant as anything I'd ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her.

"I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in 'To Catch a Thief', I thought: 'That's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen'."

Clooney also claims no matter where he is filming he doesn't get homesick as long as he is surrounded by his friends.

He said: "Home is where my friends and family are ... no city, no space fails to be a home if your family or friends can find the time to visit.

"I get desperately, depressingly homesick if I can't find a way to be near the people that bring joy wherever they go.

"Spend a night with my parents battling over who was the rottenest child [My sister or me]...Or my friends pointing out how badly I destroyed a certain bat franchise."
